Metallic Cakes

Lately metallic and chrome has been everywhere — from jewelry to clothing to nail polish. So it was only a matter of time before this trend hit the food world, and it has done so with glamour and class with metallic cakes — the next big and eye-catching thing at upscale parties and weddings.

How is this extravagant look created? There are countless lustrous shades to choose from, and the effect is created by mixing Luster Dust with a liquid agent such as vodka to create a paint to brush over any cake, cupcake, or even cake pop. This trend will add instant allure and charm to a party theme, exuding opulence and seemingly effortless beauty. Once you try this trend, you may never go back to basic shimmer-less cakes.
